Please help me with what am I missing here. Thank You.

Answer

In your sign-in.jsp, you need to change the URL to which you are submitting the login request, which you can achieve as below:

<c:url value="/j_spring_security_check" var="loginUrl" />

and use this in your form action:

<form action="${loginUrl}" method="post">

The login-processing-url attribute defaults to /j_spring_security_check, and specifies the URL that the login form (which should include the username and password) should be submitted to, using an HTTP post.
